The University of California, San Francisco Tobacco Control Archives Multimedia Collection contains audiotapes and videotapes related to the advertising, manufacturing, marketing, sales, and scientific research of tobacco products as well as materials gathered and produced by tobacco control advocates. The UCSF Tobacco Industry Audio Recordings Collection includes some of the audiotapes from the larger Multimedia Collection.
As a result of the Minnesota lawsuit, the major tobacco companies and the industry trade associations agreed to place millions of pages of paper documents and audiovisual materials in the Minnesota Tobacco Documents Depository. The University of California, San Francisco houses digital versions of the paper documents in the Legacy Tobacco Documents Library (LTDL) and has acquired a small portion of the audiovisual materials, some of which you can listen to here. Visit the UCSF Tobacco Industry Videos Collection to download or stream videos.
The UCSF Tobacco Industry Audio Recordings Collection contains material that is generally unavailable outside the Minnesota Depository and includes recordings of focus groups, interviews, corporate presentations, both internal and external, and radio commercials.
